This small, four-story oceanfront condo complex sits on a large grassy lawn between the Charley Young surf break and Kamaole I Beach—an ideal headquarters for active sunseekers. Each of the 13 units boasts a lanai with a marvelous view of the Pacific and islands on the horizon, and are stocked with beach towels, beach chairs, and umbrellas. All are individually owned and decorated, so the aesthetic varies widely. (The website features photos of each.) Studios feature queen-size Murphy beds, full bathrooms, and compact, full-service kitchens. The three one-bedroom penthouses—the only units with air-conditioning—are the sweetest option. Shopping and restaurants are all within walking distance. Rooms go quickly in winter, so reserve early; rates also dip for the first 2 weeks in July.
